The Alabama Department of Education has released the public school system calendar for the 2012-2013 school year.
Earlier this year, the state legislature passed a law to make school start dates more uniform and to protect tourism dollars from shortened summer breaks. It requires schools years to begin no sooner than August 20th and end no later than May 24th of each year
All public schools will start on August 20, 2012 and end between May 22 -24, 2013, but other holidays and breaks may fall on different dates within the various school systems.
The Houston County School System's school calendar is as follows:
- School starts: August 20, 2012
